Subject: satircal song, not a CN sermon
The description is a bit spare so it wasn't clear to me if this was an actual recording of hell raising prohibitionist Carrie Nation -- it is not. It's a satirical song telling how "a man don't have chance ... the women wear the pants, in Kansas, ", sung by Steve Porter, (doubtless a saloon sympathizer), accompanied by a pounding piano; it sound a lot like a Tom Lehrer number.

While this recording is somewhat fuzzy, the lyrics & melody are intelligible.
